Con artists are always finding ingenious ways to defraud persons of their money.
According to a report by Irie FM, three members of the Jamaican netball community including at least a current and two former national players who are getting ready to travel to Florida this weekend for the netball competition of the Jamaica high school Alumni Sports Network tournament, might have been victims of a’ airline ticket scam.
The trio were booked through a Jamaican who allegedly hails from Montego Bay acting as an agent, but recent events involving the individual in question led them to check on their status only to find out they might have been scammed.
The Jamaicans got suspicious after news that the United States national netball team to the recent IFNA World Cup qualifying tournament in Alberta Canada also suffered at the hands of the alleged agent.
Natalee Moodie president of the United States Netball Association and told Irie Fm sports that they paid the gentleman whose names was whitheld 5000 US dollars to secure discounted tickets, but after the money was deposited into an account which they were instructed to use, the con artist’s cell phone has gone dead.
The United Sates team which comprises of mostly former Jamaica national players ended up departing two days later than scheduled, but still managed to qualify for the World Cup after beating Canada 42-40 in their final game taking third spot at the tournament in Canada.
